Kitchen Reno - Day 1

Kitchen Demolition
Not our kitchen, but you get the idea.

Demolition's started: power saws and bangs and thuds...
In less time than you'd believe they had it down to studs.
We still have a sink and a refrigerator but
My new kitchen's starting with an - almost - total gut

They tore up the front hall tile and found a damaged floor;
Water has been leaking in.  We need a new front-door.
3 more rooms to pack before the hardwood's put in place...
There are boxes everywhere.  I'm running out of space.

Bought the sink and faucet at a place I found on-line.
Fingers crossed that they'll arrive and everything is fine.
I will keep you posted on the process if there's time
And I find uncluttered space to sit and write a rhyme.

    1. Nobody I've ever met
      Would call me patient... And yet,
      This reno will
      Teach me that skill
      Or call for the guys with the net.

  2. My husband is building a cabin, a studio for his art
    Which clutters our home so badly, it never looks that smart.
    He's bought all the pieces he needs , he says,
    And He shouldn't be long, just a few days.

    So with hammering and banging I wait for the time,
    when my new little house will be just mine
    And he'll be painting in the shed outside,
    And my friends and I can be inside.

    1. A place where your husband can paint?
      Dear Marian, you are a saint.
      At least all my pain
      Will be to my gain...
      In your case, however, it ain't.
